How much of the Philippines have you visited?

Over the past 6 years or so, I was fascinated with traveling around the Philippines. At the start of the year, I wrote this note as one of the 25 random things about me:

"I’m a self confessed wanderlust. I’ve been traveling more than I ever thought and trying out travel photography. It is my aim to upgrade my Lakbayan (travel around the Philippines) grade to C+ by the end of the year..."

My Lakbayan grade is C+!

Pilipinas, Tara Na!

I've upgraded my lakbayan grade to C+!  Hurray to fun loving people who joined me in my quest to see the beauty of the Philippines.  I'm loving my country more than ever.  Seriously, it's the best country I've been to and there's nothing like Filipino hospitality.  I'm sharing my stories that puts the WOW in the Philippines.

If there's any place in the Philippines that should not be missed, I'd say (click on the hyperlinks to read my stories):
